Earn Easy Money for Our School!
What is Shop & Earn?
It’s an easy way to earn money for our school without having to dig further into our own pockets. We partner with businesses that contribute a portion of their proceeds to our school when we shop or dine there. If you were going to shop or eat there anyway, why not have a portion of your purchase raise valuable $$ for Joaquin Miller? It's a WIN WIN!!! :)
A full list of retailers, offers and details on how to participate can be found below! We ask that every family help us in our fundraising goals by participating in these programs. Consider making it a family effort by recruiting grandparents and friends – anyone can participate and benet our PTA!
If you have questions about the program or suggestions for new fundraising partners, please contact Lyndsay Avalos or Kate Loftus through Konstella.
Download the Benefit app for iOS or Google Play so JM will earn up to 20% in rebates when you shop at hundreds of retailers like Peet’s Coffee, Target, Safeway & Southwest Airlines. As of September 27th, we have 59 members and have raised $89! We're trying to get 100 people using the app by the end of October. Please reach out to Kate or Lyndsay for a tutorial or if you have any questions.
Benefit Mobile is a secure app that allows you to make your purchases at retailers instantly through the app and simultaneously earn JM up to 20% of the purchase price from the retailer! You can purchase digital gift cards to use online or in-store as well. Hundreds of retailers participate including Peet’s Coffee, Target, Safeway, Southwest Airlines, Delta Airlines and more!

4% to 10% of what you spend at Amazon (depending on purchase) will automatically be donated to the JM PTA when you enter Amazon through the associate link HERE. This link will take you to JM's Amazon Associates link and JM's Amazon wishlist.
(Note: When using Amazon Associates you must click on the link through the JM website every time you shop. Bookmarking the link on your computer or phone will not earn JM any revenue. Also, this is different than the “Amazon Smiles” program below, which only earns .5%)
Dine Out Nights
About once a month, JM will announce a local restaurant that is hosting a Dine Out Night, when the restaurant will give back a portion (up to 20%) of all purchases from JM Families. Watch for announcements and check our calendar on the Dine Out Nights fundraising page.
Amazon donates .5% to JM PTA at no cost to you when you shop via smile.amazon.com. Choose Joaquin Miller Elementary PTA as your charity to support. Be sure to bookmark AmazonSmile to make shopping even easier! However, please note, the Amazon Associates program linked from the JM website Fundraising link earns more money for JM!
Box Tops for Education is a program that donates money back to JM for every label you clip from participating products such as Annie’s Organics,
Nature Valley, Ziploc, Hefty and 100's more.
Box Tops for Education is updating to an app-based program! The new and improved Box Tops mobile app uses state-of-the-art technology to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to JM’s earnings online. Over the next year, you can either cut labels and drop them in the jar in front of the office or by scanning your receipt with their app, or both for double earnings!
If every student collects 5 box tops per month, JM could earn over $2000! Think of it like a family scavenger hunt - who can find the most box tops in your household? Get your child(ren) involved in grocery shopping, counting, and fundraising while giving them an opportunity to contribute to the success of their school community!
Farm Fresh to You
